Victoria's first driverless shuttle enters service

An autonomous shuttle trial has kicked off at LaTrobe University in Bundoora, giving Victorians the chance to ride on a self-driving Navya bus. The trial will be run on an existing transport route at La Trobe, and continues until July 2018. It's designed to gain a better understanding of how self-driving vehicles interact with other road users and, perhaps more importantly, the general public.

Topping the list is the junction of the Eastern Freeway (M3), where it joins with Alexandra Parade and Hoddle Street.
